The FTSE 100 stock market crash may have caused many investors to doubt the index’s recovery potential. After all, major risks such as a weak economic outlook and a continued rise in coronavirus cases are present.However, investor sentiment has often been downbeat soon after a market crash. The index, though, has always been able to recover from its variety of bear markets since its inception to produce new record highs.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…As such, now could be an opportune moment to buy bargain FTSE 100 shares to improve your chances of making a million over the long run.FTSE 100 recovery potentialThe FTSE 100 has experienced many declines and bear markets in its history. A common theme among them is that investor sentiment has understandably been weak in their aftermath, but the index has always gone on to recover.At the present time, such an outcome may seem unlikely to many investors. There are, after all, significant risks facing the world economy’s prospects that could create challenging trading conditions for many large-cap shares. However, factors such as wide margins of safety currently on offer in the index, and a likely return to positive GDP growth as fiscal and monetary policy action impacts on the world economy, could lead to rising stock prices.As such, now could be the right time to buy a diverse range of FTSE 100 shares while they offer attractive valuations. Their current prices may prove to be temporary in many cases, and could offer capital growth potential.Accessing the FTSE 100’s recovery prospectsInvestors who buy FTSE 100 shares must accept that there is a realistic chance they will experience paper losses in the short run. The economy’s outlook is incredibly uncertain at the present time, and things could get worse for many businesses before they improve.As such, it is imperative that investors have a long-term outlook when buying shares at the present time. Otherwise, they may become disappointed in a period when market volatility may be high for many months.Similarly, it is important to invest in high-quality businesses that can overcome short-term risks to post long-term recoveries. Taking the time to assess company balance sheets and their overall strategies could be very worthwhile, and may increase your chances of generating strong returns as the FTSE 100 recovers.Making a million from large-cap sharesMaking a million from buying bargain FTSE 100 shares may seem to be a distant prospect. However, the index’s past performance suggests that buying high-quality companies and holding them for the long run is a sound means of generating relatively impressive returns for your portfolio. Over time, and as the stock market recovers, you could obtain a surprisingly large portfolio that may even be valued at seven figures.

first_imgWadiya Jamal was finally allowed to visit her spouse, Mumia Abu-Jamal, on May 21. “He was in a wheelchair; his legs are swollen; his hands are blistered and dried up and they hurt,” Jamal told supporters after leaving SCI Mahanoy prison in Frackville, Pa.For a week starting May 12, the internationally known African-American journalist had been held virtually incommunicado at the Geisinger Medical Center, where he was shackled to his bed as he underwent medical tests and was being treated for a severe skin disorder. He was not allowed to communicate with family, lawyers or even doctors who had been advising him. On May 20, he was transferred back to the prison infirmary.The transfer occurred after hundreds of supporters from around the world contacted prison and government officials by phone and email. In addition, a lawsuit was filed May 18 seeking an end to the violation of Abu-Jamal’s constitutional right to contact his lawyer and family.Jamal ended her report with a plea to “Free Mumia before they kill him.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


first_imgA criminal at work. West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey.A spokeswoman and assistant communications director for right-wing West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey was revealed on Aug. 25 to have been featured in white supremacist propaganda, a “Stop White Genocide” video.In the video, Carrie Bowe, previously employed by the conservative Family Policy Council, recites numerous racist talking points. Many of the slogans are common in the white supremacist and neo-Nazi movement, such as “Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-white.” Bowe also states there is “a program of genocide against my race, the white race.” The video features four white women dressed all in white against a white background, with each spouting that white people are victimized and oppressed by “race mixing” and immigration.The video was originally uploaded to YouTube in 2012. An hour after the Charleston Gazette-Mail exposed the video, Morrisey fired Bowe. Morrisey, a conservative white man tasked as the state attorney general with defending civil rights, says he was “unaware” of Bowe’s views.Delegate Sean Hornbuckle, one of only three Black lawmakers in the 134-member West Virginia Legislature, told the Gazette-Mail that the firing was only because of the upcoming election: “[Morrisey] fired somebody because he wants to win an election. It’s terrible that you have people in your office secretly, behind closed doors, doing things like this. If your [assistant] communications director feels like that, it shows a lot.”Though trying to distance himself from the overt “white nationalist” he employed, Morrisey has his own reactionary and racist positions. Bowe officially represented his office this year at an event in support of a Religious Freedom Restoration Act (HB 4012). This bill and ones like it across the U.S. are notorious for attempting to provide a legal pretext for business owners to discriminate against LGBTQ individuals, Arabs, Muslims or anyone else they deem contrary to Christian “religious beliefs.” (The bill passed in the state House of Delegates, but was killed in the state Senate.)Morrisey also went out of his way to support a restrictive voter-ID law in North Carolina that attacked the Black community and other marginalized groups. When the law was appealed to the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court, Morrisey, along with thirteen other Republican attorneys general, wrote a letter asking the court to keep its restrictions in place.In July, the appeals court struck down the North Carolina law. Writing for the unanimous three-judge panel, U.S. Circuit Judge Diana Gribbon Motz noted, “The new provisions target African Americans with almost surgical precision. … Winning an election does not empower anyone in any party to engage in purposeful racial discrimination.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


first_img Ag-Barometer-dropsThere has been a drop in farmer sentiment in the newest Purdue University/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer. The 7-point drop to 128 is the second-lowest reading of 2017 and one of the two barometer sub-indices is the main driver. Jim Mintert from Purdue says thoughts about the future led to the drop.“It’s people’s less optimistic perceptions about the future really,” he said. “If you look at the Index of Current Conditions, it was steady, actually a very slight uptick, but the driver was a drop of about ten points in the Index of Future Expectations. It’s a little unclear as to what exactly motivated that, but people became just a little less optimistic looking out roughly twelve months ahead about where the ag economy was going.”The new barometer comes at the conclusion of harvest. Mintert said they did not ask a specific harvest question this month, but harvest results could have contributed to the decline.Jim Mintert“Overall, I think people were pretty optimistic following the conclusion of harvest, but there were some locations where yields were certainly not as good as some people had hoped. Of course, compared to a year ago, yields in many locations were lower than what they were in the fall of 2016. So, that might account for some of the reduction in optimism with respect to where we’re going in the ag economy over the next year or so. Obviously, prices are not as strong as people would like as well, so those are two factors that maybe come into play. Clearly a little bit of a shift, but I don’t want to overplay that too much.”Sixty-two percent said they thought the next 12 months will be bad times financially in U.S. agriculture. But, Mintert added producers remain more optimistic than they were before the fall 2016 elections.Mintert is the barometer’s principal investigator and director of Purdue University’s Center for Commercial Agriculture.The 400 producers surveyed for the November barometer were also asked about trade, NAFTA in particular, and farmland values.

In February, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the state was buying up distressed mortgages in high foreclosure areas, hoping to help keep homeowners in their homes and avoid the spread of more zombie properties. Now the fight against zombie homes has found an unexpected new ally: law students.The Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns and the Western New York Law Center recently announced a new partnership with Columbia Law School to help municipalities within Erie County track and monitor zombie foreclosures. The partnership will enlist Columbia Law School students to lend their research skills to local municipalities in the fight against zombie homes, providing resources those cities and towns might not otherwise have.The partnership is the first of its kind, according to the announcement.Here’s how it will work: municipalities will be able to submit a request on a specific vacant property via a website established for this specific purpose. Columbia Law Students will then research that home’s foreclosure status and report back with their findings. The research time will also count toward Columbia’s mandatory 40-hour pro bono requirements for law students.“This new partnership with Columbia Law School is a substantial step towards riding communities of vacant and abandoned properties,” said Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns. “There is a clear need for resources for our smaller municipalities, many of who want to take action on zombie properties, but don’t have the means to do it. Working with the bright students at Columbia Law School will give these municipal leaders the necessary information to track down banks and ensure these properties are being maintained.”“We are pleased to partner in this innovative initiative with Erie County Clerk Michael P. Kearns and the Western New York Law Center with Joseph Kelemen and Kate Lockhart,” said Conrad Johnson, Clinical Professor of Law at Columbia University. “Zombie properties are a blighting influence throughout New York. By participating in this program, students at Columbia Law School can make a positive difference while fulfilling their responsibilities to serve the public.””We applaud the efforts of Columbia University in extending their expertise to Erie County,” said Robert Klein, Founder and Chairman of SecureView and Community Blight Solutions. “We hope that they will use free services like Compliance Connections to aid in their quest to rid Western New York of these nightmare neighborhoods. These Columbia Law students join fellow CU alumnae like Adam Zaranko, President of the New York Land Bank Association, and our own staff here at Community Blight Solutions, in the fight against blight.”The New York towns of Boston and Evans are the first signed on to participate in the pilot program.

first_img Sponsored Content Published 9:58 pm Friday, March 15, 2019 At top, the Pioneer Museum of Alabama annual quilt show features 70 quilts on loan to the museum, all with a story and a memory, say museum directors. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson “This is an amazing quilt show and everyone who has visited the show has been impressed by the quality and diversity of the show which will hang through April 6,” she said.“One quilt, the Passmore feather quilt, was made by the mother of Mrs. Sam Passmore. The quilt dates back to 1774-75. It was made in South Carolina and brought to Monticello in 1821. It’s absolutely amazing. Back in those days, quilts were made to be used and to last. This one has lasted for more than 200 years.”Becky Laney takes great pride in a family heirloom quilt that belonged to her dad’s mother, Cornelia Wilson. By The Penny Hoarder Skip A STITCH IN TIME: Heirloom quilts and memories on display at museum By Jaine Treadwell Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kitscenter_img Every quilt has a story and every quilt piece is a memory.That can be said about every quilt that hangs in the Pioneer Museum of Alabama’s 2019 Quilt Show. Those stories may never be shared and those memories may never be known but the quilts can be admired and enjoyed and, perhaps, even envied.Barbara Tatom, museum director, said the biennial quilt show features 70 quilts on loan, most of which are considered heirloom, vintage or antique but some are just plain old. But whatever a quilt may be called, every quilt in the show is deserving of being there, Tatom said. Email the author Latest Stories Book Nook to reopen Print Article The quilts in the Pioneer Museum of Alabama show feature many different patterns, some are familiar to those in the know about quilts, including Mary Hasslewander’s wedding ring pattern.“This is a very interesting quilt as far as color and, also the back of the quilt,” Tatom said. “Several of the quilts have been folded so that the backs can be seen. The quilt backs are often interesting. “Feed sacks were often used for the backings and that was not unusual because feed sacks provided readily available material for quilts. Several quilts in the show have feed sack backs.”Old clothing was also used to piece quilt tops and the clothing material often dates the quilt. However, because clothes were handed down from child to child or worn until they were threadbare, feed sack and biddy feed sack patterns are more recognizable than clothing materials.Although some quilt patterns were similar, if not the same, they often had different names in different parts of the country.String quilts, pieced quilts and crazy quilts were made from scraps and put together in various ways. The personalities of the quilters were often very evident.  A string quilt could be very orderly or helter-skelter.One string quilt with an interesting story was made by Florence Ivester from Stephens County, Georgia during World War I.“Her husband, Vernon, lost his right leg in the war,” Tatom said. “The quilt was always a reminder to them of their time spent apart. Another reoccurring pattern in the show is called Grandma’s Garden or summer blooms, depending on where the quilt was made.The drunkard’s path, also known as drunkard’s walk, endless trail, and wanderer’s road, were designed for the temperance cause.One of the more recent quilts in the show is a picnic quilt made by Bea McKnatt for her husband Art of South Montgomery county.“Art wanted a picnic quilt to go with his 1936 Ford pickup,” Tatom said.  “He wanted the quilt to be the color of his truck. Bea found heirloom material the color of Art’s truck and made the picnic quilt for him.”Tatom said each quilt in the show does have a story but story, or not, the Pioneer Museum of Alabama’s 2019 Quilt Show is not to be miss.This opportunity will not come around again for two years. The price of admission to the museum also includes the quilt show, making it the best ticket in town right now. “It’s what is called a friendship quilt and dates back to around 1889,” she said. “Evidently, a group of friends got together and made quilts and each quilter stitched her name on the quilt.”Laney said it is unclear whether each quilter designed the quilt block where her name was stitched or whether the names were stitched randomly.“But what makes this quilt so interesting is that each friend signed it,” Laney said. “Whether this group of ladies made just this one quilt or made a quilt for each of them, we don’t know. But, we do know that at that time, several of the friends were not married. Could be that they made quilts for their hope chests.” You Might Like Master Gardeners share love of roses, tips for growing Some gardeners shy away from growing roses, labeling them as high maintenance plants.

first_imgHome » News » Minister reassures that eviction process ‘will be improved’ previous nextRegulation & LawMinister reassures that eviction process ‘will be improved’Hurried comments to reassure follow widespread alarm that abolishing Section 21 notices would be ‘devastating’ for landlords and agents.Nigel Lewis14th May 201902,374 Views The Government has rushed to reassure landlords and letting agents that its recently announced plans to reform tenancies will go hand-in-hand with measures to streamline the court eviction process.Housing minister Heather Wheeler (left) has made the assurance in a blog written for the Residential Landlords Association, which follows significant criticism of its proposed move to abolish Section 21 ‘no fault’ eviction notices.Secretary of State for Housing James Brokenshire originally announced the measure on 15th April, claiming that it represented “one of the biggest changes to the private rental sector in a generation”.Devastating effectBut many senior figures shot the plans down including David Cox of the Association of Residential Letting Agents who said it would be ‘devastating’ for the sector.Wheeler has now said that she recognises that landlords and letting agents find the current processes ‘unduly slow and complex’ and has pledged that “changes in the law, the court process, and resourcing will need to go hand in glove with tenancy reform, to meet these concerns.”She also says that, “The vast majority of landlords provide their tenants with a decent home and good quality service” and that “few landlords evict good tenants without a sound reason.”The RLA is now surveying the landlord community to seek their views on what is required for them to have confidence that they can repossess property swiftly and effectively for legitimate reasons.“As the RLA has long argued, landlords are left frustrated at almost every stage where they want to repossess property through the courts,” says David Smith, Policy Director for the RLA (pictured, right).James Brokenshire Residential Landlords Association RLA David Cox ARLA David Smith eviction May 14, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgNationwide cake delivery service Mums Bake Cakes is looking to recruit more bakers to sell their products through its website.Founded last year by Paula Wilkinson (pictured), the Kent-based start-up is this year aiming to double the number of bakers who sell via its website after a record number of new customers visited the site in December.The business is a platform that signs up bakers across the UK, who (following a standards process) can sell their fresh cakes online to customers in their local area. There are currently 140 bakers signed up to the site.Customers are then able to use the site to order homemade cakes for themselves – or for friends and family from bakers around the country – choosing from the cakes on offer in that local postcode.Mums Bake Cakes received a £25,000 loan from government-backed The Start Up Loans Company to launch the venture.Wilkinson said: “We’ve had such a great reaction to Mums Bake Cakes since launching. We have a dedicated network of bakers who always go the extra mile to make sure every delivery is something special.”Tim Sawyer, CEO of The Start Up Loans Company, said: “Paula’s passion for the business has seen her create a successful start-up, and her achievements to date are a testament to her hard work and commitment.”last_img read more
